How does the lining of the uterus affect the likelihood of pregnancy?

The development of the lining of the uterus plays an important role in the process of conception and the possibility of pregnancy of the woman. Too thick or too thin lining of the uterus is the cause of difficulty conceiving, rarely in females.

1. What is the lining of the uterus?

The lining of the uterus or endoclass is the layer of cell tissue that covers the entire inner side of the uterus in women, composed of 2 parts:

  • Basic endometrial layer (bottom layer): Consists of glandular and buffer tissue cells, which are not greatly affected by the menstrual cycle;
  • Endoclass (shallow layer): Affected by changes in the menstrual cycle.

According to the monthly cycle, the lining of the uterus grows thickened under the action of female sex hormones, ready to make "nests" in case the eggs are fertilized (pregnant women). If during the cycle the fertilization does not take place, the endometrial layer will peel off itself and cause bleeding through the vagina, called menstruation. After that, the cells in the bottom layer again begin to grow to form a new mucous layer during the next menstrual cycle.

Where the fertilized egg is nested in the uterus, the hormones produced in pregnancy will act to continue to make the lining of the uterus thicker, while changing the structure to suit the development of the embryo and placenta. Thus, if the thickness of the lining of the uterus becomes abnormal, the process of conception and the possibility of pregnancy will affect.

2. What is normal thickness of the lining of the uterus?

The thickness of the lining of the uterus will vary with each different stage of the menstrual cycle in women:

  • Post-menstruation period

This is the period when the mucosa becomes thinnest due to recently peeling off in the previous period. At this time, the thickness of the lining of the uterus is only about 3-4 mm, which is enough to cover the entire inside of the uterus.

  • The period is about 14 days from the monthly day

During this period, the endometrial layer is not only affected by the hormone estrogen, but is also affected by progesterone, which causes the lining of the uterus to thicken rapidly and secrete mucus. At that time, the mucosa is about 8-12 mm thick, and this is the most suitable thickness for fertilization to take place.

  • The period before the

At this time, the thickness of the lining of the uterus can be up to 12-16 mm. If conception does not take place successfully, the endotriosis layer will peel off itself and get out through the vagina, forming menstruation.

3. Effects of the lining of the uterus on the possibility of pregnancy

3.1. The lining of the uterus is too thin

Too thin lining of the uterus causes menstrual problems, such as prolonged menstrual cycles, lack of menstruation (low amount of menstruation) ,… affects fertility in women. For females with a thinner lining of the uterus than 8mm after the egg is fertilized will cause difficulty in clinging to the uterus of the embryo. If the embryo can cling to the uterus, then it will also be prone to peeling off, leading to still still death.

3.2. The lining of the uterus is too thick

The thick lining of the uterus, also known as the growth of thelining of the uterus , is caused by an excessive excess of estrogen in the female body and is determined when the thickness of the endometrial layer is greater than 20 mm. This is one of the causes that interferes with the pregnancy process because this phenomenon causes hormonal imbalances, leading to menstruation, prolonged secondary amality, non-degenerative mage, still producing sex hormones, which causes the layer of uterus cells to thicken and not peel off.

In addition, a thick endoconcle can be a sign of another underlying pathology, such as polycystic ovaries, ovulation disorders,… causes the woman to slow down to have children.

Abnormalities in the development of the lining of the uterus can be detected only by ultrasound. Therefore, women of child sex age should have regular gynecologic examinations for early screening of dangerous diseases and take timely interventions, limiting the likelihood of pregnancy of women.

4. How thick is the lining of the uterus likely to become pregnant?

Most often, endometriality with a thickness between 8 – 10 mm is considered the most ideal size for conception in women

The thickness of the lining of the uterus plays an important role in the process of conception and fetal development. Most often, endometriosis with a thickness of about 8-10 mm is considered the most ideal size for conception in women.

Once there, fertilized eggs can nest and develop into a healthy fetus. If after the end of the menstrual cycle, the lining of the uterus has a thickness of about 8 -14mm, this is considered a good sign that women are capable of successfully conceiving. The lining of the uterus is measured at day 12 of the cycle before passing through the vial phase between 7 – 14mm showing that the conception rate is the same and the largest, in addition to that interval, the rate will gradually decrease.
